My FLGS has been attempting to keep a reasonable level of STA stock on hand - they've indicated it sells out pretty damn quick, which is for the best, all things considered, but does indicate that Modiphius may need to do a spreadsheet analysis and determine whether an upgrade in printing levels is desirable and necessary.
I can confirm that, in Toronto at least, the "Command Division" book is in stock and has been purchased; the "Beta Quadrant" work is set for August. One thing I'd very much like to get me wittle paws on is the Collector's Edition Core book - the FLGS has indicated that this will HOPEFULLY be available as a second print run in August, but there are no guarantees offered, at least which they're able to verify, at this point. Can the Modiphius Mods here confirm that the Collector's Edition will, in fact, be sent out for retail sale at that point?
Heck and darnation. Okay, I'll check with the FLGS and see if they can confirm that the Collector's Edition is arriving at SOME point in the pre-Apocalypse future, as indicated (perhaps they've got some copies left over from previous orders, who knows) - otherwise, I guess it's off to the Modiphius online store and seeing what can be arranged in terms of getting that book thrown over (in stages, of course - what, you think I believe it could arrive over here with ONE good baseball/football/cricket-type throw? Get real) or put inside one of those pre-Industrial style beer kegs and left to drift over here...my faith will guide it on the way...
In any case, my thanks for the update on the availability situation; I'll see what can be arranged. Meantime, looking much forward to "Beta Quadrant" in August.
